    Is this the new AP-approved use of “hopefully”? I can’t keep it straight… :^)

    STEAM roller?!?! Wow, haven’t heard that term in a while! Since I don’t see any steam engines in the photo and because of it’s location maybe it is a STREAM roller?

    So what are they called now then? Internal combustion roller?

    I think they are now called “compactors” but I am not certain. How about “presser downers”?

    I wish that it would not be paved at all. I prefer wood chips which are alot nicer for running. I think that wood chips would be cheaper than pavement but I’m not sure.

    I might agree regarding hard pavement, but in this case the path is intended to meet ADA guidelines. Maintaining a chip or stone path to ADA standards in such a highly used area is intensive maintenance.

    I’m more concerned with correct native revegetation of the area.
